Media Borough Councilwoman, Amy Johnson leaves unregistered/uninspected vehicle on borough street - AGAIN!.

Vehicle parked on 2nd Street along side Councilwoman Amy Johnson's house.

Unregistered/uninspected vehicles are not allowed on borough streets, especially ones on jacks with the wheels off.  Unfortunately, Media Borough Councilwoman must not know the ordinance or doesn't think it applies to her.  This is the second time this has happened.

Equally as bad, Council President Brian Hall lives three doors down from Mrs Johnson and yet does nothing.  Here's the link to the borough ordinance they both can read.

****Vehicles on jack stands are about as dangerous as it gets, especially when kids play on this street.******

Media Borough Ordinance

  1. When batty liberals have total control, they do WHATEVER they want, as rules no longer apply to them. See Philadelphia for a proper example.

  2. I live in S. Media, so technically Nether Providence not the Borough. That said on my very short street there are at least 4 "Neglected Vehicles." 2 on the street, others off street.

    Don't pick on the council for this one; pick on the Code Enforcement departments that can't be bothered to do their jobs. If they can't enforce relatively straightforward "public nuisance" codes like this and snow removal, can we REALLY trust them to enforce more safety-related codes?

    1. Typical Democratic response blame another area of municipal government. This is the second time council woman Johnson violated the ordinance and the second time President Hall (her neighbor) looked the other way. Sad the rules don't apply to all.

    2. What exactly do you expect Hall to do? Write her a ticket on a piece of construction paper? Rent a tow truck and haul it away?

      If this is bothering someone enough to do a blog post, they might want to instead use their time to call the department and ask that the truck be ticketed. I'll save you the trouble of looking up the number -- it's 610-566-5210 x246. (Media borough Code Enforcement)

    3. As President of Borough Council and Council woman Johnson's neighbor I would expect Brian Hall to remind Council Woman Johnson that as she was told the first time it occurred ----- unlicensed vehicles are not permitted on Boro streets. Is to much to ask our elected officials to follow the same rules

    4. It's Code Enforcement's job to enforce code, CVP. Blaming council is what would be considered blaming "another area of municipal government." I know on my street, Nether Providence's code enforcement WAS called about the derelict vehicles. The answer was, "Yea, we've heard lots of complaints about that street." That was several years ago. Occasionally cars are hauled away; the offenders just replace them other dead cars.

      Now, I believe Tedman's point was that it's shameful Council members don't hold themselves accountable to obey codes/laws. He's right on that point. My point is: given she is not holding herself accountable, we need to ask why is she not being cited. Remember a few years back, a certain governor was reported by the press for 80+ MPH on the turnpike? who got in trouble? The cops who escorted him.

      I challenge Tedman or any of the 2nd St. Neighbors who have replied to this story to call Borough Code Enforcement report back what answer they got. Anon2:16 posted the number.

  4. I live on this block. There are a lot of kids in our neighborhood. This is really dangerous. Where's the code enforcement department? How many times have the police driven by? This isn't a POLITICAL issue ... it's a SAFETY issue and an EYESORE issue!

  5. I grew up in a neighborhood where we couldn't leave our cars on the street overnight. We would moan and groan when we would have to shuffle cars around in the driveway. However, after living in Media, I now see why this is a good thing. Although not a huge problem, there are certainly many instances where junker cars sit on the street and maybe move once per year. This example highlighted here is ridiculous. Why would anyone think it be appropriate that a public street be a good place for ones own private garage. It's disappointing both that the owner does this, and the Borough allows it to happen!

  6. Let's see Brian Hall be a man for a change and have something done about it! (LOL!!!!!)

  7. The truck is also on jack stands which leads to the possibility of it falling and injuring a kid, dog or a disgusting cat.. It's a liability! Don't worry the borough will pay for the lawsuit. Libtards!!!

    1. Unfortunately, you negated anything intelligent you had to say with your juvenile language.

  8. I live on 5th street and about two years ago within two weeks of letting my inspection/emission sticker expire they slapped a yellow sticker on my car. I had to get it inspected or they were going to tow it. Nice to see that Everybody's Hometown sometimes see somebody as more than everybody - or something like that....

I saw comment libtards.Is that supposed to be a contraction of retards?As someone who has a brother with special needs..who you also know Tedman I find that term disgusting.Call me politically correct but if I met the commenter I'd punch you right in the face.As a side note some Dems on council are bad for Media.

    1. I don't have a close relation with anyone with special needs, but I find that word equally offensive. It's plain juvenile. It seems people likely don't understand how much this could offend someone. While once my reaction was to yell and get angry at people that use that word, I now try a teaching approach so that said person doesn't use the word again. Mab123, insult the local politics all you want, but please try a different word. I'm sure there are plenty that could be used!

    2. Don't take the libtard comment like that I have a special needs aunt myself. Sorry I offended you
